Flash 'N Sizzle Jem/Jerrica
#4003

Description: Long platinum blond hair with pink streak in the back, the pink is a lot lighter on my doll than any other Jem, unsure if that's typical of her.  It is usually styled in a flip. She's differentiated from all other Jem dolls in that she is smiling, has blinking earring and no tinsel in her hair.

  • She shares the same face mold as Glitter N' Gold Jem and Rock N' Curl Jem, rumoured to be created as an improvement over the "ugly" unsmiling 1st year doll.

    The back box always says what is contained with the doll.  The bold words in my descriptions are what Hasbro themselves stated came with the doll; 
    Contains; 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, Jerrica fashion, hose, 2 pairs of pumps, bracelet, hairpick, sunglasses, microphone, cassette tape, batteries and figure stand.  (Office accessories not included.)

    stage fashion
    Dress; gathered spandex bodice with attached jagged hem two-layered skirt; blue spandex material on bottom, iridescent lace net on the top (reminds me a lot of the Command Performance dress). Blue with iridescent ties keep it up and in place.

    Flash 'n Sizzle Jem on her box back and sides (basically the same photo that's used  in the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (except reversed) and the2nd year catalogue poster)
  • Most obviously amiss are the weird satin-y loafers, that are basically drawn on her :)  The 2nd year catalogue poster (which is otherwise identical) shows her in yellow sandals.
  • Her eyebrows are rather dark compared to my doll, the white of the teeth is a bit wider too (the lipstick isn't on the "teeth" at all, like it is on the doll) otherwise the make up is essentially the same.
  • Flash 'n Sizzle Jem illustration (on the box front)
  • As usual the pink in the hair is much darker than it is on the doll.
  • The stone in her bracelet is pink, not clear
